EO Detainees Message to The People

Bersih2.0 July 8, 2011 0
The six legal teams for the EO detainees today managed to spend about 15 minutes with each of the detainees. These are their statements to the people of Malaysia.
Michael Jeyakumar Devaraj, MP for Sg Siput:
I would like to thank everyone who is supporting us by their letters, prayers and urgent appeals, etc.
The  six of us currently being detained under the Emergency Ordinance have not broken any laws and our crime is that we are socialists, and we are attempting to put the issues affecting the poorer 60% of Malaysians on the national agenda. For example, issues of hospital privatisation, and decent and minimum wages.
Our detention is totally unwarranted as we have been working within the democratic framework.
The Udahlah tu … Bersaralah Campaign through the distribution of pamphlets calls on the people to think and vote properly in the next national General Election. Our actions and activities are conducted totally within the democratic space allowed to us by the Federal Constitution.
It is however sad to see that the ‘higher-ups’ in the police force are unable to differentiate nation from the party of power.
To the people – stand up for democratic rights and let us not allow this kind of intimidation hold us back!

Letchumanan a/l Aseer Patham, Secretary, PSM (Sg Siput branch):
I did nothing wrong. I do not understand why I have been arrested and now here in detention under the EO. I badly miss my family and children.
There is so much I can do outside. I support the struggle.
My heart is strong and I will continue to fight for justice.

Choo Chon Kai, Central Committee member, PSM:
I want BERSIH to proceed. The whole detention is unlawful – there is no reason to keep me in lock-up. The police must either release me, or charge me in court.

I am not in the wrong. The charges against me are unfounded.
I urge the public to fight on.

Please remain strong for that makes me stronger.
The chicken curry that they are giving to me is too oily.
